While proper dental care can sometimes add two to four years to your pet’s life, it will also help his or her health, vitality and well-being on an ongoing basis.  If left untreated, however, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may affect your pet’s overall health before symptoms are noticeable. Oral bacteria, for example, can enter the bloodstream and damage the kidneys, heart or liver.

Oral exams and dental cleanings are an important part of the preventative care we provide your dog or cat.  Our dental cleaning includes:

We also offer complimentary nail trimming in conjunction with our dental procedures, and out-patient daycare during recovery.  Your pet is released to your loving care with post-dental instructions and any pertinent information.
